    On massdrop.com, which is an okay gear website. Sometimes they have good deals though!

    If you want to sign up with my referral link, you'll get $10 in free credit as well, which is a pretty good deal, essentially a free pair of knives!

    How does the credit thing work? I used your first link and signed up. No credit. Does it show up after the drop ends?

    i clicked your link and signed up, nice deal. hope it works as it didnt make any mention of your referral.

    7 each with shipping is great to toss in a bag or give away.

    I have no idea, I've never used the referral feature before!

    Hopefully it works? Either way it's a heck of a deal for some knives!

    Massdrop is a but slow for shipping: they make a big order from the vendor and then ship it out after they receive it.

    I've got a referral code too. It just says that you'll get $10 when you sign up, but I don't see where it says that you have to make a purchase first. I'd probably proceed as if you're going to make a purchase and see if it deduct's it automatically. Can always hit cancel before submitting.

    Thanks. I don't *need* any more Moras, but can't pass up that deal.

    Based on an email I just got, thanks "kknmp", I'll get my credit when the referrer receives the item.

    Honestly decent stuff pops up there all the time, especially gear like jackets. Just remember to check their prices against Amazon, cause they don't always have good deals.

    Are you sure it's 2 knives? I received the email and the drop states:
    (2 pack)
    Included
    • 1 knife
    • 1 Plastic belt sheath
    If it's 2 knives it's a good deal.

    I believe I clicked your link and found it. I ordered one, if it's two knifes I'll give the other to a friend and keep this in the car. But I don't know how that referral works. If it means each person who buys using your link is $10 store credit for you, that means I have $110 store credit from sharing it someplace just now. Which would be cool because I always love that site's stuff but can never afford anything fancy.

    How the referral says it works is that or someone signs up and buys something the new person gets a $10 credit. The referrer also gets $10. It's basically a win-win.

    Got me questioning it now as well. I chose two different colors, but one said "color option 2", which could mean if the primary choice wasn't available. The verification email says "2-pack" but shows a knife and sheath. I will be more than a little pissed if this is false advertising. In fact, I think I'm going to cancel the order.

    I'll update when mine shows up: I'm betting the 2-pack is correct, but if it's a single I won't be terribly unhappy.

    When got in on the Darn Tough sock combo deal a couple weeks back, Color Option 1 was for the first pair, Color Option 2 was my selection for the second pair. This sale looks like it's set up the same.

    Did they all buy something? If so then it looks like you have a gear shopping spree in your future. If it was me with that kind of referral cash, I'd be looking at the Enlightened Equipment and other higher end stuff. They have some good MSR gear and flashlight's from time to time too.

    We'll find out tomorrow when the knife sale ends. But there are a few things I'm looking at with the hope that someone bought something. I did see those Enlightened Equipment quilts which would definitely up my sleeping bags ratings I'm sure. We'll have to see.

    I think it happens after the sale is done. The knifes were pushed back another day because, I assume, they were selling so well.

    are these "seconds" meaning there is some kind of defect? Why and how can they sell them so cheap if they're not flawed in some fashion?

    Mass drop does group buys. Basically, they go to the manufacturer and get special pricing because they have X number of products presold.

    is there a chance the final price will be higher than the "join" price?

    Nope. The price is what it is. I think it's all prearranged, that's why some drops will have incremental pricing, depending on the number of units sold.

    A few months ago in the Midwest USA, I was traveling, and needed some epoxy for a repair. I stopped into a farm and home store (Orscheln's) and they have a 2-pack of Moras for about $12. I was pleased and surprised to see it, but I have enough Moras. For now.

    In mid-October, Amazon was selling the Basic 511 (OD green) for $7.22 each. Amazon is offering free shipping (in USA) on orders that will arrive by Christmas. You don't need Prime or a minimum. The OD green one is currently $9.08.

    I don't know about you, but out of the 200ish people I referred, only 1 person got something apparently. How much store credits did you gain?

    Sorry, I'm old and could not figure out how to work it so I just thought I'd drop a line and maybe they will give you some benefit, etc for letting them know that the old man who doesn't fakebook etc market is closed off to folk like me.

    yeah, the site is not intuitive and very difficult for first time users. Took me like 10 minutes to get the hang of the site. I do like it, now that I know, but they've really limited their market place with such a convoluted setup.

    I selected two colors, and got one of each. These young folks who do these web sites aren't the most clear communicators in the world. Sounded like first choice, second choice for the pair. Not first knife, second knife. No matter ...

    I'm going to take one to my Mom's house for Thanksgiving. Slice up something for dinner. Mom's 90 years old, so she won't care about the handle colors.

    lol, I just got this email...

    Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know.

    Sorry to hear that.
    I haven't done anything with mine yet but put them in their newly assigned packs for future adventures.
    I hope you don't have to wait too long for them.

    so how many of y'all did this drop and received the knives or didn't? If you didn't receive the knife, did you use OP's referral link? The tinfoil side of me says that Massdrop doesn't want to fulfill the $10 credit to each party for such a small item, so I bet they'll cancel the offer to those of us who used the referral link claiming some kind of supply issue non-sense.

    I ordered a pair, straight from my own account, I received them about a week ago.

    I would like to find at least one more of the older design that only came in red and just had the front "hook". If you know where, (that is under $15), post it please.

    only 4 people used my referral link, and it says I have $10 pending for each one, still. I assume if I get the credit then they will too, but it wont be applied to their first order: it only kicks in after their first orders have been delivered, for both parties, if I understand correctly.

    so i got an email reply back stating that one of the colors I choose is having supply issues. I wrote back saying to just ship whichever colors they have as I don't have a preference.

    for those who got it, which colors did you get?

    and that was what I ordered.

    are you new to massdrop or did you use the referral link above?

    so I have been exchanging emails with them the past few days. Two weeks ago, they told me that they would continue to hold my order for 30 days, but have just said they canceled my order. Seems like a "coincidence" that they cancel it right when I'm questioning them, eventho they were supposed to continue holding for another two weeks.
